1st Expert Forum on Farm Animal Well-being

Experts from around the world gathered recently in Cardona, Spain for the world’s first Farm Animal Well-being expert forum, organised by Boehringer Ingelheim. With speakers from institutions such as Iowa State University, Massey University, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, University of Guelph, Bristol University and others, the gathered delegates were updated on welfare studies from around the world.
The forum was presented in three main sections, as well as an introductory keynote speech by Professor Suzanne Millman of Iowa State University. These sections covered ‘how to read animal signals; assessing pain and discomfort’, ‘expressing the need for more education and awareness’ and ‘improved animal well-being is rewarding’.
